I'm a Quest Outfitters guy. Good selection, good service and cheap shipping.

Montrail Shoes
The Masochist is way more durable than the Bajada. My wife has been using the women's versions of these shoes and she got 400-500 miles on the Bajada's, while she's near 1000 miles on h...

Gear damage
The mesh tears won't spread too much. I have a pack with that mesh and tons of holes for years, and they haven't really grown. If you only use this pocket for bigger stuff (i.e. clothes) th...

"What is the weight of the Aquatabs?" 1.2g per 10 pack on my scale. They're way lighter, smaller and cheaper than Aqua Mira / Katadyn Pills. They're all I've used for y...

The plan (if I ever actually get around to doing this) is to not get caught, but even in that unlikely event there's pretty easy ways out. For example, the park isn't closed during the wint...

You should delay it until mid-January and poach the trail in the winter.

2015 BMWO
Tanner: That multi-route map is awesome. Thanks for doing that. What a great course. If the BMWO continues for many years to come, this one should be revisited at some point.

Nice Rex. It might be good to have a hard reset on there too. As I recall, Tanner's InReach needed one of those during the BMWO a few weeks ago but I'm not sure if he tried a soft reset.

Mountain Laurel Designs Cuben DuoMid
The DuoMid is the best shelter for solo hikers. Don't be misled by the "Duo" in its name - you could cram two hikers in here but it's poorly suited for that (ie. no vestibule space, ...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)
I have this kit and the FireLite Mini kit. This sparker is a bit lighter than the FireLite Mini but I don't trust this sparker 100% like I do the FireLite. This sparker doesn't work well wh...

BPL FireLite Firestarter
I love this FireLite Mini. It's the only thing that I 100% trust to start a fire. With a mini Bic you can run out of gas, be at too high of an altitude, get it wet or get it oily. Matches can ...

Baladeo 22 Grams Knife
This knife is a brilliant design. Every part of it is functional and the result is a lot of knife for just 22g (or 24.3g as mine as actually weighs). When I opened the (very nice) box and first played...
